Virtual BOE Meeting

  • Virtual Board of Education Meeting

    The District 15 Board of Education takes its role as elected officials very seriously. In response to COVID-19 pandemic, it will be changing the structure of its April Board meeting to ensure, first and foremost, that all members of the Board, District 15 and community are practicing social distancing and abiding by rules about social gatherings, but while also allowing for District business to continue.

    Since Illinois is currently under a Stay-at-Home Order enacted by the Governor due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a recent provision (2020–07: COVID-19 Executive Order No. 5, Section 6) allows a change to the Open Meetings Act where “in-person attendance by a public body” is suspended. As a result, the District 15 leadership has worked with the Board President to hold the Wednesday, April 8 meeting virtually. Out of an abundance of caution, no members of the D15 Board or Office of the Superintendent will be gather in the Board room for the meeting. Instead, Board and Administrative participants will participate through video conferencing software.

    A video live stream of the open session beginning at 7 p.m. will be available to watch on our District 15 Facebook page and website, so residents can view the meeting live online per our usual practice. If you'd like to address the Board through public comment, please complete the Google Public Comment Form prior to the meeting being called to order.

    Any submissions we receive will be read aloud at the start of the meeting as long as they comply with Board Policy 2:230 - Public Participation at Board of Education Meetings and Petitions to the Board. Submissions will also be posted in BoardDocs and on the District’s website so that members of the general public are able to view them after the meeting concludes.
